Director Colin Higgins plays foul with the audience, constructing some of the most dishonest suspense sequences ever filmed, and ends with a thriller that is obnoxious and manipulative in the extreme. If it were exciting, I suppose it wouldn’t matter, but it’s not: Higgins can’t be bothered to bring the slightest bit of conviction to his plot, which takes nearly two hours to run its unimaginative course. Every passing minute is palpable as Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase fumble with their characters and, eventually, with each other.
